Book Summary

A posthumous story collection by the National Book Award-winning author of Jesus' Son contemplates subjects ranging from old age and mortality to the unexpected ways the mysteries of the universe manifest, depicting haunted characters who would atone for the past, remember departed loved ones or come to terms with lifelong obsessions.
